The Golden Knights put on a clinic in puck control for the first 18 minutes or so getting off a total of 21 shots in the 1st and 35 through two. They were able to capitalize for three goals but gave up three themselves, mostly due to turnovers in their own zone. The Blackhawks got one right off the jump in the 3rd, but Vegas was able to get it back from Cody Eakin. Reilly Smith made an incredible poke check to start his own break and he finishes the game winner.

*** Jonathan Toews
** Vinnie Hinostroza
* Reilly Smith
Waiting to hear what the status is on Sbisa. He’s a great physical defensemen and an marked improvement when we have him back there over Merril. Overall our defense started fallling apart but seeing as how it was against the Hawks, they did well enough.
